In the past month, I have been called old three times.
1. A stranger at Target:
Stranger: How old are you?
Stranger: Oh, I would have thought you were older.
2. A cousin:
Erin: Are you on Facebook? You should look me up.
Cousin: You're on Facebook? It seems like a lot of older people are on Facebook. Imean,I'mnotcallingyouoldoranything.
3. My friend's girlfriend:
Girlfriend: You are what I'm going to look like in a couple of years.
Erin: Well, how old are you?
Is it me? Is it something I'm putting out there? Is it my clothes? My hair? My makeup? Is it because I don't show stomach skin? Or back skin? Is my idea of modest dress actually frumpy?
Someone help me. I didn't THINK I was old, but I'm starting to.
